State-of-the-art solutions to ensure your cargo arrives in perfect condition

World Air pharma Active

The solution for time and temperature sensitive pharmaceutical products that need to be shipped in active containers. A variety of containers is used to keep healthcare goods as protected as possible, including dry ice technologies. Goods shipped are kept at a constant temperature throughout the entire cargo journey. Use of active containers mitigates risks for ambient temperature influence on healthcare products.

World Air pharma Passive

Passive solutions for pharmaceutical shipments

In addition to your own autonomous packaging, we offer main temperature ranges solutions such as COL (+2+8°C) CRT (+15+25°C) and ERT (+2+25°C).

Our passive solution provides storage handling into qualified and yearly calibrated cool rooms according to your temperature range specification. We ensure minimizing breaks in the chain by providing short time SLA as well as temperature controlled holds while inflight.

To make sure passive cargo is kept at the required temperature between aircraft and the cool facilities, pre-cooled thermal blankets are used which stabilizes the environment of the shipment shielding it from extreme weather and temperature fluctuations.

Constructed from a double layer of waterproof PVC material, the blanket can be used as a primary or secondary protection. Pharmaceutical cargo is positioned in the aircraft to allow for quick off loading and priority movement to the cool facilities in the hub.

  • Pre-cooled in +2°C to +8°C cool room before applied to maximize effectiveness
  • Protection up to 45 minutes at 45°C
  • Minimizes temperature shocks
  • Sealed with Velcro for quick attaching and removal
  • Extensively tested

Data loggers to give you 100% transparency of our cold chain integrity

At World Air Cargo we understand that some of our customers wish to get additional guarantee of their special cargo integrity with the usage of data loggers.

Almost all data loggers contain lithium batteries and some of them can be equipped with GPS/GSM modules which under certain circumstances can influence aircraft avionic system and cause fire on board. Taking this into consideration, we have established approval procedure for any data loggers that accompany cargo during transportation.
